Outdoors Recreation Club

Mission Statement:

The goals of the Outdoors Recreation Club are: to achieve a deeper appreciation of natural systems through outdoors recreational activities, to show that appreciation by performing local outdoors clean-up projects and/or other nature based service projects. The Outdoors Recreation Club is committed to the development of community awareness and development and will be participating in service projects in coordination with the SUN center and ESA offices.

Community Service Projects:

The club is committed to the betterment of the community. This means that they will be putting forth the efforts to do so through community based service projects. There will ideally be two device projects each semester depending on the number of members and their level of enthusiasm. A minimum of one will be scheduled either on campus or in the community. On occasion the club may meet at a designated area in the outdoors to remove refuse and help keep nature pristine. Other projects may be implemented if there is support shown during meetings. Each member is expected to attend and assist at a minimum of one service project.

Recreational Activities:

The unifying concept for the outdoors recreation club is that its members enjoy activities that involve the outdoors. For many, the act of recreation can be a simple drive out into the mountains, or it can be an adrenaline filled adventure through rapids down a river. What we like to do as individual can vary greatly. The Outdoors Recreation Club is an association of people who like doing different outdoor activities and can collaborate to provide opportunities to one another to participate in such events. Meetings will provide a forum for club collaborated activities as individuals and as a club. Meetings will also be a forum for discussion on survival skills, however it must be understood that there is a certain amount of risk associated with any form of exercise. Some activities can be quite exhausting. Therefore, liability waivers must be signed before attending any outdoors activity that is being sponsored by the club, but participation in the outdoors activities is not mandatory to be considered an active member.
